I’ve written a few posts about busy-ness versus idleness before, but about a week ago, I realized something. If I am busy, and someone asks me to do something, I am more inclined to say yes than if I am not busy. It could have something to do with inertia.
Like if you’re on vacation from work, all you want to do is lie around and listen to music or watch movies or do whatever doesn’t involve using your head or your effort too much. Then someone could ask you to do something and you’ll refuse because you’re in your lazy mode and you weren’t expecting to have to do anything.
But if you’re at work or if you’re really busy in your regular life, and someone asks you to do something, you’re more inclined because you’re already in busy mode. Chances are, you say yes even if you’ve already got a million things going on and you really might not have time for the new task.
Does anyone else ever experience that? Or am I crazy? 🙂
